For your viewing pleasure...
(Tao on photo for enlarged view)
Gives us more info please.
I think it is very poor manners to display pornographic material.:shock::speechles
And not give details, so fetishes can be satisfied.:devious:
The Aeronautical Style Secretariat (ASS) will be contacting you directly.:hammer::uzi::computer:
I wish I had more info. I only know it is German by the registration number on the bottom of the wing.
Looks like someone was inspired by the Atlantica and succeeded.
Doubtful. Looking at what's visible of the root profile and the amount of twist, it appears to be another Horten disciple. The Atlantica was also a blended-wing-body. This is not.
Yeah, I'm with Topaz, looks Horten-derived to me too. There was a Horten-approved wing called the PUL-10, I don't know if this is a follow-on to that or an entirely new design.
The Germans made an interesting aircraft called the Speed Canard, which was a sexed-up Long-EZ using a 2 seat Grob glider fuselage. The photo of the aircraft above looks a lot like a canard-less version of the Speed Canard.
Considering the fact that only scientists and technophiles and aero engineers are interested in flying wings, the aircraft in the photo may well be the rare and mysterious "Speed Can-Nerd"
Porn post reported to moderators.
Not the same airplane, but I didn't know about this attempt to refine the SB-13, either. That's neat.
I want one. Just to stare at.
Reminds me of when I first saw the BD-5 with V-tail. It immediately draws you in.
I can't quite read the registration. If we could, we could probably look it up.
It appears to be D-EBWB, but I couldn’t pull up anything onat search. (You have to tap the photo to get the readable original size)
I get the same results, even when blown way up:
Is there a little bit of a subliminal message in there?
BWB... blended wing body.
Did you try D-E8WB?
And are we sure it's not an RC model?
I thought about subbing an 8 for the ‘B’, but the German lookup site I found only had alpha characters in all of their lookup tables, no numbers.
As for it being an R/C, I don’t think so... too much detailed attachments (pitot tubes, lights, hinges, trim tabs, etc) that all appear to be appropriate for a real aircraft. I know people put lots of detail on scale models, but these details go way beyond, and why put all of that detail on unless it were a scale model of a ‘real’ aircraft?
I found this about this flying wing design:
The world premiere of the HORTEN HX-2 at AERO Friedrichshafen
// APRIL 10TH - 13TH 2019 // HALL B1 // BOOTH 101 //
HORTEN AIRCRAFT press conference
// APRIL 11TH 2019 // 10AM CET // KONFERENZZENTRUM WEST // ROOM: SCHWEIZ // 1ST FLOOR //
I wonder if Bill Moyes was involved, I know several Norten HX series have been built as gliders but it looks like Horten finally built-up the motorized HXc and renamed it the 2. Tip rudders and fences to balance high speed adverse yaw? Cannot wait for the unveiling for more info.
